Organizations throughout Omaha have work to do when it comes to creating professional environments that are inclusive and representative of the diversity of the community, according to a recent study conducted by researchers at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).

The assessment used in the study was developed by graduate students in the I/O Psychology program, under the guidance and supervision of Carey Ryan, Ph.D. and was administered by Emily Adams, Laura Brooks Dueland, and Danielle Crawford (Graduate Research Assistant, Center on Children, Families, and the Law). As additional organizations within the Omaha community take the pledge to make DEI more of a focus, researchers will have more data to work with and be able to track changes in representation at participating organizations over time.
